San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston was recalled from Triple-A Fresno to start the game Wednesday, April 8, against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Fantasy Tip: Heston is attempting to fill the void with Matt Cain (forearm) on the 15-day disabled list. The prospect Heston could be worth using in FantasyScore down the road if he shows well against the Snakes in the series finale.

San Francisco Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong will receive the start against the Arizona Diamondbacks Tuesday, April 7, after both SPs Matt Cain (forearm) and Jake Peavy (back) were scratched due to injuries. SPs Tim Lincecum and Chris Heston are both options to face the Snakes Wednesday, April 8.
Fantasy Tip: Vogelsong ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) went 8-13 for the Giants last year with a 4.00 ERA and 1.28 WHIP while striking out 151 batters in 184 2/3 innings over 32 starts. Last year against Arizona, he went 1-2 with a 4.40 ERA. Vogelsong also fared much better at home in 2014. He's a cheap option at FantasyScore and worth considering against a D-backs squad that is a bit offensively challenged.

San Francisco Giants Ps Chris Heston and Michael Kickham threw Sunday, March 10, in a minor-league 'B' game in front of manager Bruce Bochy, pitching coach Dave Righetti, general manager Brian Sabean and a handful of his lieutenants. The pitchers are showing they will be ready if needed, and that could possibly be sooner rather than later. "You need depth in your rotation and these are two guys we think a lot of," Bochy said. "If needed at some point, they'll be ready. Both of them, I thought, did a real nice job."
